General Information

Powder day at Park City
Copyright: - Park City Mountain Resort
Powder day at Park City
Description - A century of raucous history, spurred by the discovery of silver in the surrounding mountains, followed by 37 years of unparalleled passion for skiing have made Park City Mountain Resort an unforgettable experience for skiers and riders of all ages.

Attractions - More than $35 million in improvements have transformed the ski area into a world-class resort, combining the original character with state-of-the-art technology and conveniences: more six-passenger, high-speed lifts than any other resort in the U.S.; snowmaking reaching nearly every corner of the resort's 3,300 acres; grooming that locals know as simply the best; and the crown jewel, an official venue of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.

For the 2000 ­ 2001 season, Park City opens the Legacy Lodge. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner in dining areas inspired by our mining heritage. Shop for the latest ski and snowboard wear, pick up your rentals or test the latest ski and snowboard equipment -- all in the Legacy Lodge, just steps away from the PayDay lift.

Park City Mountain Resort's snowboarding operations department is dedicated to providing the best possible riding experience. Services include the PayDay halfpipe, the new Eagle Race Arena 'Super 'Pipe', a Pay-for-Play boardercross course, a beginner terrain park, and the Sitka Run 'Super Park.'

Recreation - Park City is a world-class full service ski resort, offering outstanding skiing and snowboarding in addition to opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dining, and shopping.

During the summer months, experience the Alpine Slide, lift served mountain biking, Little Miners Park, miniature golf, horseback riding, skating at Gargoza park and much more.

Climate - Several weather effects combine to bring Utah its famous powder snow. Prevailing winter winds winds push clouds full of moisture east from the Pacific Ocean, across California and Nevada and to Utah. When the clouds meet Utah's Rocky Mountains, the remaining moisture rises, cools and condenses, and precipitation hits the Utah ski resorts with deep powder snow that is particularly light and dry. Another weather element that feeds Utah's "snow making machine" is the Great Salt Lake Effect. The lake releases water into the air that then rises into clouds of snow, producing squalls on the lake's eastern flanks. These squalls contain some of the lightest, fluffiest snow in the country which falls in feet - not inches- in the Wasatch Mountains.

Location - Park City is located only 45 minutes east of the Salt Lake City International Airport. From Salt Lake City travel east on I-80 up through Parley's Canyon. When you reach the Kimball Junction, take the 224 exit, turn right, and travel south along Highway 224. After approximately 8 minutes you will arrive at Park City. Just follow the signs to Park City Mountain Resort.

Directions from Salt Lake City Airport: From the airport take I-80 east across Salt Lake City. After reaching the foothills and the eastern edge of the city, continue about 15 ­ 20 minutes to Exit #145 Kimball Junction / Park City. From Exit 145, go south on Highway 224 to Park City and Deer Valley.

Seasonal Information:
Normal Ski Season: Mid-November through Mid-April.
